The INKASS (Intelligent Knowledge Assets Sharing and Trading) knowledge exchange system couples case-based reasoning with ontologies to assist match-making between knowledge offers and knowledge demands in an interorganizational context. A tool suite lets system administrators maintain and improve the knowledge exchange.
